The Unsupportive Boss

Another area of improvement that showed up in The State of the Manager-Employee Relationship survey was a need for managers to help with employee growth and development. Companies are discovering that one way to retain their best employees is to help them pursue a career path that is meaningful to them. Otherwise, they may decide to make their own path — out the exit door.

How to be a better boss:
=>> Establish a mentoring arrangement, either formal or informal, to help your workers define their long-term objectives.
=>> Recommend learning opportunities and support their goals by offering to help pay for education or training.
=>> Offer professional development and skill building, either in-house or through public seminars.
=>> Provide the potential to advance in your organization.
=>> Encourage networking so they can connect with other people who can provide good career guidance and valuable industry insight.
